Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not very reliable I installed 15 of these in our studio. On three of them the lugs that the patress screws screw into broke off. Now one has just died electrically for no apparent reason. Wish I had bought more expensive ones.

Is the RCD latching or none latching? eg will it need resetting if there is a power cut?

Asked by: nickthechef
Hi nickthechef, Passive RCDs are Latched, Active would be Non-Latching (and hence need resetting after a power cut).

Outdoor floodlights

Hi I am looking to install 4 x 50w LAP floodlights on the one circuit. Is it possible replace an unused socket in my kitchen with this and simply put a plug on the wire connecting the 4 floodlights?
Asked by: Connor1424
Hi Connor1424, 4x 50W lights would not particularly cause a problem to a 3A (720W), 5A (1200W / 1.2kW) or 13 fuse (3120W / 3.12kW) in a plug so your proposed connection method sounds fine.

Will this RCD switched socket (4714p) work with a garage consumer unit that is 2way.itwill not keep tripping the rcd on the consumer unit out.if so can you tell me a way round it.Can youlet me know thank you.

Asked by: raybo12
Hi raybo12, With RCDs you need discrimination to prevent upstream devices tripping at the same time as the local one. In practical terms this means that where this socket has a 30mA trip level the next device after it would need to be 100mA trip or slower reacting (possibly Time Delayed), which the standard device in a garage unit would not tend to be.

does this metal socket include a rubber grommet for the cable hole?

Asked by: dash56
Hi dash56, As we do not know in advance whether a customer will be using conduit, Steel Wire Armoured cable, Twin & Earth or flex for their installation we do not include any gaskets or grommets with the unit to minimise possible waste.

Would this be suitable to protect computer equipment?

Asked by: CottageCats
Hi CottageCats, This RCD socket will protect against any 30mA or greater power leakage or imbalance on the connected equipment, regardless of what that equipment is.
